Pele: What I really think about new Man United boss Jose Mourinho

Pele reveals that he is a big fan of newly-appointed Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho...

Pele has revealed that he is a keen admirer of Jose Mourinho and is backing the Portuguese coach to be a success at Manchester United.

Mourinho signed a three-year deal with the Red Devils last week after days of speculation linking him with the Old Trafford post.

The former Chelsea boss, who had been out of work since his sacking back in December, has been tasked with restoring United to the top of English football.

And Brazil legend Pele has revealed that he is a big fan of the former Inter Milan and Real Madrid boss.

Pele is quoted as saying by the Daily Star: “He’s a good coach. I love him and I wish him good luck.

“When you have a good coach, normally it’s possible to make a good team. But to win you need to have good players. The coach doesn’t win the game. They can prepare the team.”

United will be expected to secure an immediate return to the Champions League after the Red Devils missed out on a top-four finish under Louis van Gaal last season.
